To extract tick mark


New Member
To extract tick/check mark (√) from spreadsheet, use Alt 251 to 'key in' √ mark in a cell. Don't insert √ symbol.

This should work in any Windows word processor, text editor, browser or email client.

1. Make sure your keyboard is in NumLock mode.
2. Hold down the ALT key and enter the number on the numeric keypad. (Note that many laptops have a blue FN key that changes a set of keys, also with blue numbers on them and usually in the 7-8-9-U-I-O area, into a numeric keypad.)
